THE SELECTOR: TOMAS KALAS

Posted on: Thu 06 Feb 2014

Defender Tomas Kalas is the latest player to pair six subjects into the categories first, last, best, worst, easiest and hardest…

FIRST
Holiday
The first holiday I remember is with my family when I was very young and we went to Italy. It was nice but because I was only a child everything was organised by my parents so it probably isn't my favourite holiday. The first holiday I actually organised and booked was with my girlfriend a few years ago, we went to Rhodes in Greece. The whole trip was arranged by me so everything was done just the way we wanted and we had a lovely time.

LAST
Music
The last music I listened to was this morning, I put on some house and techno, which is my favourite type of music. My favourite song at the moment is by Martin Garrix and it's called Animals.


BEST
Game
I was involved in some memorable matches while on loan at Vitesse Arnhem. They might not have been my best performances but they were great games to play in. In one season we beat Ajax home and away. We won 2-0 at their ground and then when we played them at home we were losing 2-0 but came back and won 3-2. From a personal point of view, my best game was also for Vitesse. I can't remember who we were playing against but we drew 2-2 and I provided assists for both of our goals.

WORST
TV
In terms of English TV I tend to just stick to the sports programmes and I particularly dislike history shows or history movies.

EASIEST
Training
The most enjoyable training sessions for me are when we play small-sided games because it helps improve my technique. I like sessions which are light-hearted but also serious when it comes to improving your game.

HARDEST
Opponent
I don't enjoy playing against physical strikers. For me, playing against somebody who is big and powerful is more difficult than playing against a smaller, quick opponent. For example, at Chelsea I don't look forward to playing against Demba Ba in training.
